The New Haven Library will honor ADA Anniversary




NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Public Library will honor the 18th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act with a free screening of a 2007 feature film, Music Within, at 6 p.m. July 10. This film chronicles the true story of Richard Pimentel, who was largely responsible for the passage of the historic act in 1990, library officials said. About Music Within , film critic Roger Ebert said "Pimentel's own experiences and what he sees happening to his friends inspire him to become a disability rights activist…The movie works, it's effective, and audiences will respond to it…Just remember that its hero stands for countless others," library officials said in a statement.

Music Within will be introduced by Michelle Duprey, director of New Haven's Department of Services for Persons with Disabilities. There is no charge for the event, which will take place at the downtown library, 133 Elm St. Free parking is available. The library is wheelchair-accessible. Details: 946-8835.
